On Saturday, April 24, 2021, from 10am - 2pm, The Colony Police Department will host a "Drug Take Back" collection sites at The Colony High School. 4301 Blair Oaks Dr.
The Colony Police Department is focused
on removing potentially dangerous controlled substances from our residents and citizensmedicine cabinets.
A national take-back day will provide a unified opportunity
for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceuticalcontrolled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for
destruction. This one-day effort will bring national focus to the issue ofpharmaceutical controlled substance abuse. The program provides an opportunity
for law enforcement to collaborate with the DEA and establish a safe collection site.
Controlled, non-controlled, and over the counter medications may be collected from individuals. The general public is often unaware of the distinction in medication status. Intravenous solutions, injectable items, and syringes will not be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.
